Actress Tawny Cypress took her last breath as Simone Deveaux on NBC's scifi hit, Heroes.
Okay, so we're paying our respects to a fictional television character, but for many, the murder of Simone Deveaux in last night's Heroes plot twist, was a devastating shock to Tawny Cypress fans across the nation (though we've seen it coming since the mid-season cliff-hanger).
The gorgeous actress who has moved up the ranks of TV's food chain since her days on the daytime soap All My Children, had this to say about her character's untimely demise in a recent USA Today interview:
"It feels appropriate to die at the hands of my two suitors," says actress Tawny Cypress, who has played Simone since the pilot episode of NBC's hit superhero series. "All of the deaths on Heroes so far have been very ugly and graphic, and this one was more a beautiful fade-away."
The 30-year-old actress has been in tears on and off ever since show creator Tim Kring informed her in December of Simone's fate. "My story line just wasn't there," she acknowledges. "They just couldn't figure out where to go with Simone."
In Tawny Cypress' case, we hope her post-Heroes afterlife includes reincarnation, with roles on the small and large screens in the future.
